When choosing a wedding planning certificate to take, consider the assessment mechanism used. Is it a written exam? A multiple choice test? Or is it a portfolio that you have to produce? Earning a wedding planning certificate has to be practical and current for it to be beneficial.
A portfolio for a wedding planning certificate should be similar to what a wedding planner would produce for an actual client. It should discuss the coordination service and the couple’s bio, detailed and abbreviated budgets, a resume (not the kind for a job!), diagrams/rendering, logistics and more. A wedding planning certificate is therefore very comprehensive training!
A portfolio for a wedding planning certificate should be assessed by an industry professional instructor. At TISOH, the entire faculty consists of professionals working full time in the industry. In addition, they have earned CHE- Certified Hospitality Educator credentials from the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute to ensure that they can teach effectively.
Earning a wedding planning certificate is a decision to be evaluated carefully. Be sure to choose an accredited school and not just any “association” or company offering a training. You have no assurance of quality otherwise.
